Missouri Vein Care is the only practice in the St. Louis area that is accredited by and accepts all insurance companies, making it the most affordable provider of vein treatments.

Midwest Vein Care has become the go-to destination for reliable diagnosis and treatment of spider veins and varicose veins in St. Louis.

Our team of expert cardiologists at St. Louis Heart and Vascular, with seven locations serving St. Louis and surrounding communities, offer comprehensive care for adults of all ages with venous insufficiency. If you have symptoms of venous insufficiency, call St.
Louis Heart and Vascular's nearest office to schedule a consultation with a vascular specialist. Venous insufficiency is a condition where the valves in the veins that carry blood back to the heart prevent blood from flowing backward. As a result, blood accumulates in the veins of the legs since they are furthest from the heart, often causing varicose veins to form. St. Louis Heart and Vascular treats each patient as an individual when it comes to conditions such as venous insufficiency.
Venous diseases are almost always covered by typical insurance plans.For patients whose vein treatment costs are not covered, we also offer a variety of funding options including CareCredit, HelpCard*, HSA or FSA accounts for all of our vein clinics. The sooner you seek treatment for varicose veins and spider veins, the greater the chances that treatment will be successful. When the valves in the blood vessels don't work properly, blood pools and expands the vein to the point of creating bumps in the skin. Patients will have access to an even stronger network of doctors specializing in the treatment of varicose veins and spider veins. When the delicate valves in the veins in the legs lose their proper function, it results in venous reflux which causes a congestion of blood within the veins of the leg. The long saphenous vein that runs through the inside of the leg from groin to ankle, and short saphenous vein that runs along outside of leg from knee to ankle are prone to developing these broken valves that cause venous reflux. In addition, if you have severe pain, swelling, tenderness in your legs or if they feel warm to touch then you may have condition called May-Thurner Syndrome (MTS) also known as iliac vein compression syndrome.
As explained in Vein Problems tab almost all patients with varicose vein problems have some degree of heaviness, discomfort or swelling in their legs even if they have become accustomed to these problems over time. When valves weaken and are damaged as result of blood clot in veins of legs or due to pelvic tumors or other factors then veins stop working as needed. St. Louis Heart and Vascular offers several treatment options to correct problems associated with venous insufficiency.
